When Brock Lesnar beat John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, many fans voiced concern over how much he appeared on television. Lesnar’s contract was for a specific number of dates, so the WWE planned out in advance when and where he would show up. However, PWS reported on Wednesday that since he won the title, Brock Lesnar’s WWE contract has been altered.
The new WWE deal will pay Brock Lesnar more money, but now the WWE can book him to appear on “WWE Monday Night Raw” shows where they feel he is needed, as well as pay-per-view events. The deal states that they can call on him to appear where they want him and they will simply pay him extra for each date above and beyond his original contract called for.
This works out perfectly since the WWE rumors state that Brock Lesnar might be holding the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from now until “Wrestlemania 31.” It sounds like the plans have remained the same, for Lesnar to hold the title and retain it in the rematch with John Cena. Then, Cena will move on into another feud while Lesnar works his way through the faces in the WWE. Finally, Roman Reigns will possibly win the Royal Rumble and get into the main event at “Wrestlemania 31” where Lesnar will make him a star.
Things could obviously change, as they often do in the WWE. For now, the WWE is smartly using pre-recorded interviews with Brock Lesnar and having Paul Heyman come out and work as the advocate for his client, while keeping the champion at home. However, it sounds like Brock Lesnar will be there when the WWE needs him as long as he holds the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
